We love this house, and this was our second visit to "Gumbo One." Among the things we appreciated were the unobstructed beach views, the vaulted ceilings and open floor plan, and the pet-friendliness of this home. As far as pet-friendly vacation rentals go, this is among the better quality ones. We met the owner once, and found him to be a very pleasant gentleman who was anxious to be helpful. However, there wasn't much to help us with. Almost everything was perfect here, and our aggravations were minor: the dishwasher was useless to us, because it would not complete a cycle, the satellite remotes in the bedrooms were without batteries and, after we purchased new batteries for the remotes, we couldn't get them to function, anyway! Only one of the lights in the master bedroom had working bulbs, the ceiling fans throughout the house were filthy and the furniture was quite dusty. These issues, obviously, were the fault of the real estate company that manages the property, and shame on them for not having done their jobs properly! Yes, we could have called and complained about these items, and I'm certain that they would have been addressed promptly...but having our vacation interrupted by strangers coming in and out of the house and upsetting our dogs would not have been pleasant for any of us, and, as I indicated, the inconveniences were minor enough that we just decided to live with them. We did, however, list them on the comments sheet provided by the rental agency, so hopefully, these issues will be resolved before the next visitor arrives. We're leaving for home tomorrow, and our vacation was wonderful! "Gumbo One" is a great house! We're looking forward to visiting again next year.
